Rhinelander High School celebrates swim team with send-off to state
RHINELANDER - The swimming Hodags received quite the send off before heading to the state meet in Madison. 

RHS students lined the halls to wish the team good luck.

The conference and sectional champs hope to build off the remarkable season they've had in six different events at state. 

Head coach Jenny Heck says she can't wait to see how her girls compete in the state atmosphere. 

"I think it gets so loud in the Natatorium and there is so much excitement there. That alone will get them swimming faster. Their bodies are ready, their minds are ready. I think all of the energy at the Natatorium will help them improve today," Heck said.

Results from the meet will be posted Friday night.

NEWBOLD - Parts of the Northwoods have seen more than blank feet of snow this season. First responders want to make sure that snow doesn't create a public safety concern.

The fluorescent 'fire signs' outside many Northwoods homes help firefighters and other first responders find your home quickly when there's an emergency.

Newbold Fire Chief Mark Fetzer said it's important to keep them clear of snow.

"If we can't see them, neither can whoever is removing the snow from your driveway," said Fetzer. "They may plow it right over, then you won't have a sign there at all."
